Stickney station opened with what was known as the ‘New Line’, between Coningsby Junction and Bellwater Junction, in 1913.

Built by the Great Northern Railway with a double track, in 1916 the GNR Board agreed to lift one line of rails to assist the war effort. This happened on several branch lines nationwide with the rails destined for use in France.

The missing track was reinstated in 1923.

This station lost its goods service in 1964, became unstaffed in 1968 and the line and station closed in 1970.

The nave arcades are Early English whilst the tower is Perpendicular though lowered and restored in the late nineteenth century.

The chancel of 1853 is by William Butterfield, who added the clerestory two years later.
